Re: Steering showdown

I'd say that most of the time, I drive with just my left hand at 9. I go with 9&3 if there's enough other traffic around, though if I'm stuck sitting in heavy traffic I'll usually just drive with my left at 7.

Re: Star Wars Episode 3.5: Roguey One Kenobe

Among my group of friends, anyone who saw Rogue One in 3D had no issue with CGI Tarkin, while everyone who saw the film in 2D placed him firmly in Uncanny Valley territory. It's probably just an anomaly from the small sample size, but I was curious if others' reactions were similarly aligned.

Re: Every hour, on the hour

It bothers me that points are awarded here for posts that are not "on the hour" (though the last few have done well in that regard).

What-If Copyright

I noticed that the footer on What-If pages contains the following:
Copyright ©2012-15 xkcd.

I just wanted to point this out in case it hasn't been updated because of simple oversight.

Unless my knowledge is out of date, Feather Falling is compatible with other forms of damage protection. So unless the exclusion was intentional, you could add some Blast Protection or other to those boots.

Re: Minecraft

The OP lists some server details, but mentions a modpack (for 1.6.4, were I to guess from the mod list). It seems recent discussions are about a Vanilla 1.11 server, yes? Should this first post's details be updated?

Re: Firefox issue on annotations

Java is not Javascript, Javascript is not Java. I can't actually find a way to natively, wholesale block Javascript in Firefox 50, but you may have an Add-on such as Ghostery or NoScript that is blocking Javascript on What-If.

Re: 1122: "Electoral Precedent"

BTW, shouldn't some of the lines be different, such as 1796: "No one without false teeth has become a president" "...but Adams has ."? I don't want to be a grammar nazi, especially since English isn't my first language, but it bugs me a little. Maybe I'm just missing something, ...
